• Gene annotations for chickpea and pigeonpea genome assemblies have been loaded and gene descriptors assigned using Automated Assignment of Human Readable Descriptions (AHRD). PLEASE NOTE: these gene models have not yet been assigned to gene families.
  • Gene "basket" functionality: in the results of a Gene search you will now have the option to add individual rows or the entire query result into a "basket" for applying batch-oriented operations on the basket page. Currently, this supports download of mRNA or polypeptide sequences for the genes. Note that the contents of baskets are session-specific and should not be relied upon for persistent storage of sets. As an alternative, gene lists stored locally may be used as input to a Gene search using the "Contains any word" operator and the gene name list.
  • Genome assemblies of the two diploid progenitors of peanut, A. duranensis and A. ipaensis, were submitted to GenBank and now they have been published.
